Library Food for Fines Drive

Take a Bite Out of Hunger
Sunday, March 22 – Saturday, March 28

Do you have fines on your library account? Join the Library’s Food for Fines drive, help out the community and do yourself a favor, too. For every non-perishable food item you donate, you can clear $1 of fines from your account up to $10.  In the past, patrons donated two items to clear $1 of fines. This year, it will be 1 item to clear $1. 

The food will be donated to the St. Vincent DePaul food pantry in Tigard, which will distribute it to local families in need.  March is an important month for food pantries because their inventory is often depleted. 

Acceptable donations include:Food for fines

  • Canned meats (tuna, chicken, salmon etc.)
  • Canned and boxed meals (chili, soup, macaroni and cheese etc.)
  • Peanut butter
  • Pasta, rice and cereal
  • Canned fruits
  • 100% fruit juices
  • Baby food

The Library cannot accept homemade, perishable, open or unlabeled items or rusty cans. Donated food can only be used to reduce fines, not other library charges. Take a bite out of hunger and your fines at the same time.

IRS Provides Limited Tax Forms To Libraries
(February 10, 2015)

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has sent a limited number of tax forms to libraries this year and no instruction booklets.  The Tigard Library has received 1040, 1040A and 1040EZ forms. According to the IRS, they have reduced the number of tax forms and publications significantly because Congress drastically cut their appropriations in the 2015 budget.

In cooperation with AARP, the Tigard Library is once again offering tax help Fridays-Sundays until Sunday, April 12.  All appointments are currently filled through Sunday, Feb. 22.  People can call the Reference Desk at 503-718-2517 to make an appointment.

Library Self-checkout Machines Require Passwords
(January 16, 2015)
Library patrons now must use their passwords on the self-check machines. This change will improve library card security by preventing someone from using a lost or stolen card on the machines.  Patrons will use the same password that they use to access their account online. If they have forgotten their password or wish to reset it, they can change it online on their account or ask at the Circulation or Welcome desks.
